Idi Amin
I am the hero of Africa.
Amin quotes
Idi Amin is a splendid type and a good [rugby] player … but virtually bone from the neck up, and needs things explained in words of one letter.
Amin
I am not a politician but a professional soldier. I am therefore a man of few words.




Amin Idi quotes
Amin is a splendid man by any standards and is held in great respect and affection by his British colleagues. … He is tough and fearless and in the judgment of everybody … completely reliable. Against this he is not very bright and will probably find difficulty in dealing with the administrative side of command.
Amin Idi
In any country there must be people who have to die. They are the sacrifices any nation has to make to achieve law and order.
Idi Amin quotes
Racist, erratic and unpredictable, brutal, inept, bellicose, irrational, ridiculous, and militaristic.
Idi Amin
My mission is to lead the country out of a bad situation of corruption, depression and slavery. After I rid the country of these vices, I will then organize and supervise a general election of a genuinely democratic civilian government.
Amin Idi quotes
He is killer and clown, big-hearted buffoon and strutting martinet.
Amin
Sometimes people mistake the way I talk for what I am thinking. I never had any formal education—not even a nursery school certificate. But sometimes I know more than Ph.D.s because as a military man I know how to act. I am a man of action.
Amin Idi
Politics is like boxing — you try to knock out your opponents.
Idi Amin
His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular.




Idi Amin quotes
Although some people felt Adolf Hitler was bad, he was a great man and a real conqueror whose name would never be forgotten.
Idi Amin
You cannot run faster than a bullet.
